Fin 1 Whin 1

Paddy’s day was as per here; dry at first and then rain, rain and more rain. We actually had 26.5mm recorded on the 17th.
So this made for great water conditions on Sunday but I’m afraid the fish did not co-operate. Some of our anglers even went to the Owenduff with nice conditions and they also blanked.

Yesterday, however we did manage to land 2 fish.

Thomas Dehlin had a fresh fish off Finlough of 7lbs on a Norwegian tube fly.

Local angler Peter Joyce landed a sea liced fish of 6lbs10.5 ozs in the Whin Pool on a Willie Gunn.

Conditions today are good with the river running at 30, but so far we have nothing landed.
